**The Mexican
Reconquista of our
Southwest**

2018-01-02 06:19:44 UTC

*"You're Mexicansβ€”Mexicans who live north of the border." Mexican President
Emesto Zedillo in a speech to Mexican-American politicians in Dallas, Texas in 1995
(The New York Times, December 10,1995, Section B, p. 15)*

2018-01-02 06:20:09 UTC

In 1916, (The New York Times, March 10,1916, p. 1.) in our own century, Pancho Villa and his revolutionary soldiersβ€”or drunken banditos, take your pickβ€”rode out of their Mexican sanctuary and into Columbus, New Mexico shouting their battle cry, "Mata los gringos!" (kill the gringos!). And kill the gringos they did, and they burned and they looted. Before they were driven back to Mexico by the hot pursuit of the American Army, Pancho Villa's bandito revolutionaries killed 17 Americans, both civilian and military, male and female (T. R. Fehrenbach, Fire and Blood. Macmillan, 1973, p. 524. Charles C. Cumberland, Mexico, The Struggle for Modernity, Oxford University Press, 1968, p. 366.)

2018-01-02 06:20:23 UTC

Today, Pancho Villa is a Mexican folk hero. Today, Mexican ethnics are the majority in much of the southwest. Long before 2050 AD, they will be the majority in all of the southwest. As the Hispanic population surges past 50%, Spanish will replace English as the dominant language. New waves of Mexican immigrants won't have to learn English to work or collect welfare, so they won't bother to. Thus they will not be assimilated into American society as previous Mexican immigrants have been.

2018-01-02 06:20:41 UTC

Demographics and affirmative action will purge the Anglos out of police departments and other branches of local government. Bilingualism will increasingly be mandatory for both government and private employment. Eventually, a working knowledge of English will not be a requirement for government employment at all. Eventually, Anglo citizens who speak only English will be hard pressed to obtain any government employment or services. The southwest will be transformed into a Spanish-speaking, de facto province of Mexico.

2018-01-02 06:20:59 UTC

Enforcement of immigration laws by Hispanic-controlled police departments will disappear entirely. Some Hispanic-controlled police departments will publicly announce their defiant refusal to enforce immigration laws. Millions of desperate, poverty-stricken Mexicans will stream across the border. The southwest will be American only in a sense best described as a legal fictionβ€”a meaningless flag fluttering overhead and a federal army of occupation to prevent the disaffected locals from tearing it down.

2018-01-02 06:21:18 UTC

If this scenario sounds farfetched, recall that it parallels how formerly Mexican Texas was settled by waves of Anglo immigrants who rebelled and set up their own nation the minute they assembled the military resources to do so. Now history is running in reverse, and the Mexicans are taking the southwest back. Like it or not, admit it or not, ignore it or not, the Mexicans are taking the southwest back, and short of sealing our border with Mexico there is precious little we can do about it. These events will not occur in isolation. Long before the middle of the next century, Mexico will experience at least one, and more probably a series of, catastrophic revolutions. The classic Mexican revolution usually features most of these signature events:

2018-01-02 06:21:31 UTC

**1:** A Southern, Indian-based uprising which is traditionally put down by the wholesale
slaughter of Indians by the Mexican Army and Spanish-ethnic militias. The current
Zapatista uprising is exactly such a rebellion.

2018-01-02 06:21:42 UTC

**2:** A Northern uprising seeking to break the political domination and eternal corruption of
the Mexico City-based, Spanish-ethnic elitist clique. The Northern-based PAN party will
probably stumble into such an armed rebellion unless it is co-opted into the spoils system.

2018-01-02 06:21:52 UTC

**3:** Initial victories by the revolutionaries as they overwhelm smaller detachments of the
regular Mexican army, who will be hampered by their corrupt officers who will fight
ineffectively or flee.

2018-01-02 06:22:02 UTC

**4:** Riots in Mexico City by students, labor unions, the usual agitators, and just plain hungry
people.

2018-01-02 06:22:17 UTC

**5:** Proclamations by Mexican Army officers, police officials, or regional political leaders in
favor of the central government in Mexico City, or in favor of the revolution.

2018-01-02 06:22:41 UTC

**6:** Rebel and federal hordes laying waste to the countryside. When there is precious little
left to loot, burn, rape, and murder locally, they start towards the big pinata of Mexico City.
At this point, the Mexican President either makes a grand speech, loots the treasury and
flees or stands and fights. Making a stand involves importing large amounts of arms from
abroad - meaning America or a European power - and reorganizing the Mexican Army.

2018-01-02 06:22:57 UTC

**7:** If the Mexico City-based, Spanish-ethnic clique wins, then a great slaughter of Indians,
and mestizo peasants takes place, and things are promptly back to normal. If the
revolutionaries capture Mexico City, some bandito/revolutionary becomes president.
However, since only the Spanish-ethnic, elitist clique is capable of running the country,
they're always right back in power within a few years. Then the giant corruption-revolution
wheel starts yet another great creaky turn. Watch for these events as Mexico topples into
civil war because its waves of refugees will flood across our borders.

2018-01-02 06:23:15 UTC

The coming revolution in Mexico should not be dismissed as a sort of comic fiesta of tequila-swilling banditos firing pistolas into the air to the tune of La Cucaracha. Mexican revolutions make ours look like frat house food fights. The last serious Mexican revolution lasted from 1910 to about 1920 and resulted in the death offrom 1 to 2 million Mexicans out of a population ofjust over 15 million. Something like 10% of the entire population perished. The corresponding figure for our first CivilWar is 2%. (Brother against Brother, Time-Life Books, p. 408.)

2018-01-02 06:23:40 UTC

In the last Mexican revolution, armies of federal soldiers and revolutionaries roamed the countryside. The worst would take over a town like movie bikers, rape all women and girls who made the cut, loot everything worth stealing, and smash and bum everything else. Few objected. Those who did were lucky if they were shot. Many were castrated, hung, or variously tortured to death. A favored amusement of one Mexican general was a "fruit tree," a tree from which a dozen or more were hung simultaneously. The next Mexican revolution will likely be somewhat different due to changed circumstances. One suspects that the worst fighting may be in Mexico City itself. Certainly, vast numbers of refugees will flee across the border seeking food and the protection of American law.

2018-01-02 09:32:59 UTC

The American government is preparing for exactly such a scenario. In 1995 near Nogales, Arizona the Border Patrol and the military cooperated in field testing an "Enhanced Border Control Plan." (The New York Times, December 8,1995, Section B, p. 16). Compounds of tents surrounded by chain link fences and barbed wire were constructed for the express purpose of detaining and processing anticipated massive waves of illegal Mexican immigrants. What might cause such an overwhelming inflow of illegals? According to a US government spokesman as related to a New York Times reporter the causes might be: "A natural disaster, or the economy collapses, or the military attacks the government, or any number of other situations."

2018-01-02 09:33:07 UTC

Similar exercises have recently been held elsewhere, including near McAllen, Texas.

2018-01-02 09:33:26 UTC

Mexico is utterly corrupt, a swirling cesspool of corruption. Hundreds of rich Mexicans have been kidnapped for ransom in the past several years, mostly by gangs tied to drug cartels and Mexican police departments (The New York Times, June 25,1994, p. G). In March 1994 a Mexican police commander and two of his men were arrested when they tried to hijack a car belonging to the son of Ernesto Zedillo, the President of Mexico. (The New York Times, March 3,1995, p. 7). The moonlighting police commander, by the way, had served a prison term for murder prior to being accepted by the police.

2018-01-02 09:33:50 UTC

The entire border area is a sinkhole of crime and gunfire. Gangs of Mexican banditos are looting Southern Pacific freight trains that pass near the border (Newsweek, Aug. 21,1995, p. 69. The Economist, June 17, 1995, p. 31.). During a recent 18 month period, over 100 trains were looted, with the Mexicans carrying off everything from TVs to frozen fish.

2018-01-02 09:34:13 UTC

Eventually, the corrupt Mexican establishment will be overthrown and replaced, most probably by leftist, gringo-baiting revolutionaries not unlike the Sandanistas of Nicaragua. Economic collapse and increasing population pressure will drive millions of Mexicans across the border where only a few will find work, and most will survive on government assistance in slums and refugee camps. These poverty-stricken illegal aliens will further aggravate the artificial labor surplus in the Southwest, driving wages down even further, accelerating the ongoing flight of working-class whites.

*Based on projections of US Census Bureau figures. The projections here may be realized
much earlier due to incresed white flight and Hispanic immigration*

2018-01-02 09:35:31 UTC

**Fig. 2: Border states and their demographic future.**

2018-01-02 09:35:47 UTC

Multinational corporations will squash all efforts to turn this tide of events. They will continue to bribe our corrupt American politicians with PAC money. Even more NAFTAstyle treaties will be put into effect, which will farther impoverish working-class people in both Mexico and America, and hasten the downward spiral into Civil War II. Bitter, energetic, and unemployed young Mexican and Mexican-American males will flock to guerrilla training camps south of the Rio Grande, camps actively supported by a radical Mexican government. The reconquista will then shift into its active military phase.

2018-01-02 09:36:24 UTC

The seeds of this future have already sprouted. There exists a campus-based group of Chicanos advocating an independent Hispanic nation in the American southwest, a nation they have given the name of "Aztlan." (Peter Brimelow, Alien Nation, Random House, 1995, p. 194.). You will hear more of this Aztlan in the future, because illegal immigration, tribalism, and white flight are constructing this new nation day by day, every day.

2018-01-02 09:37:23 UTC

New Mexico was the first state of the union to become a miniature third-world nation in recent American history. It became so about 1991 when whites were no longer a majority in New Mexico, In about the year 2006, Hispanics will become the actual majority of the population of New Mexico, and it will live up to its name and become a de facto part of Mexico. It will be the first state to fall to the demographic reconquista, and without a single shot having been fired. The shooting may come at some future date when the Mexican flag or the Aztlan flag goes up and the tanks roll out of federal military bases as the government tries a counter reconquest. Then there will be an abundance of shooting. (California will be the second third-world state in about 2010 when Anglos will account for less than half its population. See Robert A. Pastor and Jorge G. Castaneda, Limits to Friendshipβ€”The United States and Mexico, Alfred A. Knopf, Publishers, 1988, p. 293.)

2018-01-02 09:37:41 UTC

Today, about half the first graders in Texas are Hispanics (LesterA. Langley, MexAmerica, Crown Publisher, 1988, p. 170.). When they reach adulthood the Hispanics will outnumber the Angles. The long-awaited reconquista of gringo-occupied Northern Mexico has begun. Reconquista - that's the word the Mexicans have for their reconquest of their occupied northern territory- currently, but only temporarily, our American Southwest.

2018-01-02 09:38:09 UTC

The first Reconquista occurred when Christian knights drove the Muslim Moors out of Spain, starting in the Eleventh Century AD. Now, Mexicans see this first great Reconquista as inspiration for their own recovery of their patrimony stolen by the army of blue-eyed invaders. If you can't take the Reconquista seriously, ask yourself if you would fight to regain American soil that had been conquered and occupied by foreigners.

2018-01-02 09:38:51 UTC

Do you think Mexicans are any less brave or less devoted to their country? Do we think of the Texans of the Alamo as Mexican traitors or American patriots? If legal nationality counts for more than tribal affiliation, why do we hail the Alamo defenders as American heroes rather than spit on them as Mexican traitors? Many, perhaps most, were, we should recall, naturalized Mexican citizens and/or legal immigrants. They swore an oath of citizenship and allegiance to Mexico, and they broke their pledged word. When Texas declared for independence, many Americans spontaneously rushed to Texas and the defense of their tribal brothers. Does anyone really think Mexicans will be less courageous and stay at home when their tribal brothers likewise raise their flag over Los Angeles?

2018-01-02 09:39:38 UTC

In the year 1999, the southwest will cease being nation-like in its ethnic composition and became empire-like, because no single ethnic group will constitute an absolute majority. Shortly afterwards, the southwest will again become nation-like in its ethnic composition because the Hispanics will be an absolute majority. The natural and historic political cycle will be repeated, and secession will occur, certainly violent, probably to the point of all-out war. And bear in mind that Figure 2 does not take into account increased illegal immigration or increased white flight out of the southwest. If you are an Anglo living in the southwest, or in fact any non-Hispanic living in the southwest. you are well advised to leave as soon as practical, certainly within the next five years.

2018-01-02 09:39:56 UTC

Incredibly, the Reconquista threatens not only the southwest, but ultimately the entire nation. According to the Census Bureau, in 1994 (US News and World Report, August 14, 1995, p. 9.):

2018-01-02 09:40:16 UTC

*"For the first time ever, more Hispanics were added to the U.S. population than whites."*

2018-01-03 03:50:11 UTC

In summation, the Hispanic guerrilla movement in the southwest will enjoy all three of Mao Tse-tung's conditions for a successful guerrilla movement: Support of the people; suitable sanctuaries to operate from, both in-country and across the Rio; and the ongoing support of a foreign government.

2018-01-03 03:50:25 UTC

Open, all-out warfare will start with a wave of massive urban riots setting the southwest ablaze from Houston to San Francisco, with the epicenter in Los Angeles. Spanishspeaking police and National Guardsmen will side with the rioters, raise the Mexican flag, and lay siege to federal military installations. An outright invasion across the Rio Grande by regular Mexican Army units will likely follow.

2018-01-03 03:53:58 UTC

At this point, the federal government will have only two options: surrender the southwest to Mexico, from which we originally stole it, or attempt to take it back by a massive, all-out invasion by our regular federal military, which may or may not succeed, and will certainly require the use of heavy weapons, intensive street fighting, and straight-up genocide cleansing.

2018-01-03 03:54:19 UTC

Technically speaking, the future revolt in the southwest should not be thought of as Hispanic guerrillas fighting the American military on U.S. soil. Rather, it must be more accurately recognized as an invasion of northern Mexico by the American military, a task whose inherent difficulty is more readily apparent. Recall that the southwest will in reality be Mexican, and foreign invaders - by which I mean the U.S. military - will have no choice but to resort to ethnic cleansing to win, because mere occupation will result in continuous guerrilla raids against the occupiers, exactly as would be the case if the American Army crossed the Rio Grande and occupied northern Mexico today.

2018-01-03 03:54:27 UTC

**The Reconquista Checklist**

2018-01-03 03:54:38 UTC

Watch for the following developments that constitute a checklist of events that will unfold as we edge closer to the abyss of Civil War II in the southwest:

2018-01-03 03:54:45 UTC

**Item 1:** A requirement by any local or state government that its employees must be fluent
in Spanish.

2018-01-03 03:55:16 UTC

**Item 2:** A lack of requirement by any local or state government that its employees must be
fluent in English.

2018-01-03 03:55:48 UTC

**Item 3:** The adoption of policies by school boards that Spanish classes be mandatory or
that instruction in English be optional.

2018-01-03 03:56:13 UTC

**Item 4:** The demand by a Mexican political party or a major politician that the southwest of
the United States be returned to Mexican sovereignty.

2018-01-03 03:56:24 UTC

**Item 5:** The formation of an Hispanic-based political party in America.

2018-01-03 03:56:48 UTC

**Item 6:** The increasing display by many Mexican-Americans of nationalistic symbols such as the Mexican flag, in much the same manner that many African-Americans now commonly wear Malcolm X hats.

2018-01-03 03:56:56 UTC

**Item 7:** The emergence of a revolutionary guerrilla movement in Mexico.

2018-01-03 03:57:10 UTC

**Item 8:** The overthrow of the Mexican establishment, either by an election, coup d'etat, or revolution, that brings an ultra-nationalistic government to power, either right- wing or leftwing.

2018-01-03 04:26:24 UTC

**Item 9:** A general economic collapse in Mexico followed by a massive surge of illegal aliens into America.

2018-01-03 04:26:40 UTC

**Item 10:** The expansion of the Border Patrol or its conversion into a military force equipped with heavy weapons.

2018-01-03 04:27:04 UTC

**Item 11:** The massing of American military units near the border, or the involvement of our federal military in border control.

2018-01-03 04:27:13 UTC

**Item 12:** The massing of Mexican Army units along the border.

2018-01-03 04:27:28 UTC

**Item 13:** The public refusal by a police department controlled by Hispanics to enforce immigration laws, for individual Hispanic policemen to refuse to enforce these laws, or for any association of Hispanic law enforcement officers to equivocate about these laws. Also watch for the first instance of an Hispanic-American law enforcement officer who can not speak English.

2018-01-03 04:27:42 UTC

**Item 14:** Any cross-border raid by Mexican revolutionary guerrillas into America, however small. This will breach an important psychological barrier and lead to more such incursions.

2018-01-03 04:28:02 UTC

**Item 15:** The common occurrence in America of urban riots by Mexicans or MexicanAmericans as riots by African Americans are now common.

2018-01-03 04:28:54 UTC

**Item 16:** The formation of Hispanic militias in the southwest.

2018-01-03 04:29:12 UTC

**Item 17:** The recognition of dual citizenship by the Mexican government for Chicanes and for Mexican immigrants who become citizens of America. The Mexican government will use this concept of dual citizenship to involve itself in internal American affairs such as promoting racist affirmative action for Hispanics, influencing American elections, and interfering in matters concerning control of our borders.

2018-01-03 04:30:10 UTC

**Item 18:** Watch for Mexican-Americans claiming legal rights to land currently owned by Angles, claims based on the old Spanish royal land grants. When Mexico was a colony of Spain, Spanish kings granted large tracks of land to their Spanish and Mexican subjects in what is now the American southwest. The Mexican government continued legal recognition of these grants after Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821. After our war of aggression against Mexico, the southwest was surrendered to us by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. Under the provisions of this treaty, the United States was to respect these land grants. We didn't. We Angles stole most of it straightaway. As soon as the Hispanics control the legal and law enforcement machinery in the southwest, they will steal it back, straightaway, every last square foot of it, probably under color of law, but by leveled rifles if they are impatient. This cycle of land stealing illustrates as well as you please how the real world works: (A) The Spanish immigrants stole the land from the Indians by genocide. (B) The Spanish immigrants redefined themselves as Mexicans, revolted and stole the entire country from the Spanish Crown. (C) The Angles stole the land from the Mexicans by wars of secession and aggression. (D) The Mexicans and Mexican-Americans will steal the land back, either by direct force in Civil War II, or under color of law backed by the police force of the state.

2018-01-03 04:30:39 UTC

**Item 19:** Watch for the appearance of third-world slums in American cities. They will almost certainly appear first in the sprawling urban barrio centered in East Los Angeles, or the dismal Hispanic agricultural towns near Fresno, California, or adjacent to border towns like El Paso. They will be straight out of Mexico City, built of cinder blocks, plywood, tin and even cardboard, with illegal and dangerous pirate electrical hookups and no sewer hookups (The New York Times, March 27,1988, Sect. I, p. 1. The New York Times, Jan. 3,1989, Sect. I, p. 12. The New York Times, April 2, 1995, Business Section, p. 1. The New York Times, Jwe 20, 1995, Sect. D, p. 8.). Any attempts to evict them will bring accusations of racism, and will spark riots

2018-01-03 04:54:54 UTC

**Item 20:** Watch for border incidents involving exchanges of gunfire between Mexican police and/or military on one side and American police and/or military on the other side. One such incident was reported in the New York Times. On Aug. 10, 1995, a U.S. Border Patrol officer on the American side of the border was shot in the back by one of two Mexican (Nogales City) police officers on the Mexican side, who then crossed over the border onto American soil and continued firing at the American patrolman and his partner, neither of whom fired back. According to the the New York Times the border is now an area of "low-level conflict," (The New York Times, Aug. 20, 1995, p. 5.) so expect an escalation of such shooting incidents in the future.

2018-01-03 04:55:11 UTC

**Item 21:** Watch for a general exodus of working-class whites out of the southwest, especially the border area, and increasing mention of this flight in the establishment press. This will be accompanied by a downward spiral and even a collapse in real estate prices in the southwest.

2018-01-03 04:55:51 UTC

**Item 22:** Watch for all manner of violent and disruptive incidents in Mexicoβ€”Derailments and looting of trains; hijacking of trucks; seizure of the Haciendas of the wealthy; massacres of peasants; mutiny in the army; occupation of factories and government offices by workers; soldiers and police firing on protesters; units of the security forces engaging each other in firelights; formation of private security armies; bank robberies and ransom kidnappings of the wealthy by revolutionaries; food riots; all manner of sabotage; show trials followed by public executions; corpses dumped along roads; a general exodus of the wealthy to Europe and America; another and even more serious collapse of the peso and a massive flight of capital; a collapse of the stock market and the economy in general; the removal of the seat of government from Mexico City; the storming of the Presidential Palace by a mob; the resignation and exile of the President; the seizure of Mexico City by a revolutionary body.

2018-01-03 04:56:13 UTC

This concludes the checklist for Civil War II in the southwest. Some items of this checklist, such as the establishment of a rural guerrilla movement in Mexico, have already occurred to one degree or another. I leave it to the skeptical to check off the others, one by one.

2018-01-03 04:57:40 UTC

**The Mexican Establishment**

2018-01-03 04:58:21 UTC

Much has been made of the supposed commitment of the Mexican establishment to transform Mexico from a one party socialistic dictatorship into a capitalistic and multiparty, Western-style system. This much-touted transformation was, and continues to be, a complete and premeditated sham. The ownership of state corporations was simply transferred to the Mexican elite - stolen, actually. In 1987 there was one Mexican billionaire, by 1994 there were 24, all from this wholesale looting of state property (The New York Post, January 18,1995, Patrick Buchanan's column in the Editorial Section). The Mexican elite has no intention of allowing real democracy and honest government in Mexico. They know perfectly well that they would lose any honest elections hands down, and that they would be put against the walls of their own luxurious haciendas and shot. The Mexican elite has its own clear vision of a new Mexico - a sham democracy, complete with sham elections and sham freedom of the press. The intention is to finance it by the profits from their slave labor Maequiladora factories, ongoing drug trafficking, and blackmail bailout money from our corrupt American politicians intimidated by threats of waves of illegal aliens should Mexico collapse.

2018-01-03 04:59:02 UTC

The bailout isn't working, or rather it isn't working if one judges it by its avowed goal. On the other hand, it is working quite nicely when judged by its actual goalβ€”the bailout money is going straight into the bank accounts of the Mexican elites, and their unindicted coconspirators in the American financial establishment. The more realistic members of the Mexican elite have seen the handwriting on the wall, and are simply bailing out. The former Deputy Attorney General of Mexico, Mario Ruiz Massieu, was arrested at Newark Airport in New Jersey with $30,000 in cash in his possession. Subsequent investigation revealed he had 10 million dollars in various Mexican and American bank accounts (The New York Times, May 10,1995, p. 12.).

2018-01-03 04:59:16 UTC

The former President of Mexico, Carlos Salinas, has fled Mexico for permanent exile in America and elsewhere. His brother has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and reportedly has a stolen horde of $84 million (US) dollars stashed in various Swiss bank accounts (The New York Times, Nov. 25,1995. p. 4.) As for "subcomandante" Marcos, if he is not killed or captured by the Mexican Army he will go into exile in France and be lionized by Parisian cafe society. Then the Indian uprising in Chiapas will get serious.

2018-01-03 05:06:14 UTC

The uprising in Chiapas, by the way, was organized by old school, hard-line, Spanishethnic Marxists centered in Mexicocity and its Autonomous Metropolitan University, the traditional nursery for middle-class, leftist revolutionaries in Mexico. Subcomandante Marcos has since skillfully usurped the leadership, purging all who stood in his way, and he now calls all the plays however much he may deny it. If not killed, he will sooner or later, probably sooner, cash in his publicity chips and head for his natural habitat, the fashionable cafe society of Europe with all its fawning ladies. Watch for this guy on the lecture circuit. He is a self-promoter, and he will probably desert his Indian cannon fodder to advance himself as President of post-revolutionary Mexico, because he sees the coming explosion in Mexico clearly. The revolution in Chiapas will never shift into high gear until its leadership passes to the hands of the Indians and mestizo poor. Mexico's biggest immediate problem is that the old system of the dictator/President heading the PRI Mafia with its absolute monopoly on force and corruption has broken down. Before the drug explosion, the PRI Mafia controlled all corruption and power right down to every last peso, burrito and pistola. The President was the untouchable, supreme Aztec who spoke exactly once concerning everyone's place and fate. Thus, everyone knew his place and more importantly - what would happen should he forget. Few forgot. The system was custom designed and put in place expressly to stop the great revolution of 1910 to 1920, and to prevent its reoccurrence, and it worked. It worked because the PRI elite held a jealously guarded monopoly on both money and guns. Not any more, amigos!

2018-01-03 05:07:21 UTC

Enter the drug and gun mafias. They evolved in a Darwinian world where the one rule was that you shot and shot and shot until shot dead yourself. Because of the explosion in American drug consumption after the Vietnam war, especially cocaine, the gun mafias grew so rich and powerful that they corrupted the police. The police had always been totally corrupt, of course, and by design, but strictly within the pecking order set by the PRI. Assassinations of PRI and other establishment bigs were forbidden as were turf wars.

2018-01-03 05:21:11 UTC

Now there is simply no longer any center to Mexican society, no supreme Aztec atop the highest pyramid in Mexico City. The gun mafias have ridden into town like Cortez, and they are not impressed with Zedillo or his effete and feathered PRI high priests. The Mexican center has not held, things are falling apart. Various local political bosses, businessmen, police chiefs, mafias, guerrillas and military commanders are amassing what amounts to private armies, many with heavy weapons. They answer only to superior force, and only if immediately and liberally applied.

Worse yet, since Mexico is now multi-centered, the old method of fine tuning the machine by occasional murder has broken down. Before the gun mafias turned Mexico into a narcorepublic, when a body was found by the side of the road the appropriate people knew who did it (and usually why) because there was a monopoly on power. Nowadays, in multicentered Mexico, it is impossible to track the assassins and assorted killers to their paymasters. It's all a horrid version of "Who's on First," and not even President Zedillo himself can be sure who is assassinating whom or why - a 180 degree, destabilizing reversal of the old system. To be sure, the old system was horrid, but it was a system that did prevent the greater horror that it was designed to prevent - the ultimate, mega-horror of civil war.

Watch for more assassinations and other signs of the collapse of the traditional Mexican system and its elite, and watch for signs of what will replace it, because the hyenas have started to devour each other.
